Some iPhone 14 models will not have a SIM slot

Emma More-McClune, director of technical services for GlobalData, said that certain iPhone 14 models will not have a physical SIM slot. She added that Apple’s move away from the physical SIM card is a matter of time.

Jeff Howard, vice president of mobile devices and accessories at AT&T, the US carrier, said the eSIM is a logical successor to conventional SIM slots.

The so-called eSIM, an embedded SIM card, changes the physical SIM card into a virtual one, which is directly embedded in the device, providing access to the operator’s network.

Some iPhone 14 models will remain without a SIM card slot

Apple reportedly applied for a patent related to eSIM back in 2011. The advantage of an eSIM is that it can save space in a mobile phone to install, for example, a larger battery.

However, eSIM also has some drawbacks, for example, it is difficult for users to change their mobile phone/operator number. To replace it, you need to go to the operator’s office or scan the code with another mobile phone, which is not as convenient as simply replacing the SIM card.

They will receive curved screens from local (Chinese) manufacturers and the recently introduced HarmonyOS 3.0. The younger model is credited with SoC Snapdragon 778G, all the rest – Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 without 5G support. However, some sources also talk about the use of Snapdragon 888 (also in the version with an LTE modem), so not everything is clear here yet.

Will there be more 200 megapixel cameras in smartphones OmniVision

There may be more smartphones with 200-megapixel sensors in the near future, and we are probably talking not only about expensive devices. OmniVision has introduced its second sensor of this class.

Will there be more 200 megapixel cameras in smartphones?  OmniVision OVB0A sensor introduced

The OVB0A sensor has an optical format of 1/1.395″ or 1/1.4″ for simplicity. That is, it is quite large, but smaller than the same Samsung ISOCELL HP1, while it is exactly the same as ISOCELL HP3. The pixel size is 0.56 µm.

The sensor supports 16-cell binning, so that photos are obtained with a resolution of 12.5 megapixels. Video can be shot in 4K at 120 fps, 8K at 30 fps is also supported. The sensor should appear in smartphones in the fourth quarter.

OVB0A is OmniVision’s second 200MP sensor. The first was OVB0B in a larger optical format. It was introduced back in January, but in the end it did not appear in any smartphone. So, if OVB0A does not repeat the fate of the firstborn, then it will just become the first available on the market.
